Beyond Timeby Niamh McCooey
Acclaimed installation and performance artist Chiharu Shiota has created a brand new awe-inspiring, site-specific installation at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Titled Beyond Time, this expansive installation of thread has been brought to life in the park's 18th century chapel.
Shiota is known for large-scale works such as The Key In The Hand (2015), an elaborate entanglement of red thread and keys, which she made when selected to represent Japan at the 56th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.
Shiota’s work for Yorkshire Sculpture Park responds to and activates the unique architecture and heritage of the chapel. Exemplary of her work’s resonance with memory and human relationships through the use of objects, the installation has interlaced the physical with conceptual to create a new visual plane – as if painting in mid-air.
